With Halloween candy filling the shelves of your local grocery store, the online retailer CandyStore.com released its annual most popular Halloween candy purchases by state, in late August.
With Halloween just weeks away, it's time to take a look at what they found.
There are certainly some picks that wouldn’t be a surprise such as Twix, Snickers and Kit Kat bars making the list. But there were some interesting choices, such as candy corn (candy corn?

New Jersey’s top pick? Well, that is Skittles, a favorite sweet treat of Los Angeles Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch.
Overall, according to the retailer, the most popular purchase this season has been Skittles. Rounding out the Top 10 are M&M’s, Snickers, Reese’s Cups, Starburst, Candy Corn, Hot Tamales, Hershey’s, Tootsie Pops and Jolly Ranchers.
